Personality Edit

RO has difficulty in reading people's emotions and feelings. Often saying insensitive and blunt comments towards his colleagues.

Since RO has difficulty in understanding other people's emotions, he has often looked for advice on how to understand others from Bomber and Bird. Although he still misinterprets the advice he's given. He often misunderstood Bomber's actions of gratefulness towards him and believed she was making inappropriate advances on him. RO also found himself in a difficult predicament in trying to protect Bird from her abusive ex-boyfriend by acting more like Dutchy.

He once told 2Dads a story about how his father locked him inside of a wardrobe and left him inside there for hours when he was only 6 years old and when he finally escaped he smashed a beer bottle around his father's head when he was unconscious. He later admitted that the story was lie so he would think that RO actually understood what 2Dads was going through while he was trapped inside the submarine.
